Foreign Graduates to be 'Kicked Out' of UK

Home Secretary Theresa May has unveiled plans to Òmove towards zero net student migrationÓ by sending students home who have come to Britain on student visas and make them reapply for work visas from abroad. Under the plans, graduates from non-European Union countries would have to leave the UK after finishing their studies and then reapply for a work visa, instead of being able to apply for one while still in Britain, the Sunday Times reports.

ÒMaking sure immigrants leave Britain at the end of their visa is as important a part of running a fair and efficient immigration system as controlling who comes here in the first place,Ó a source close to the Home Secretary told the Sunday Times. Under the plans, the government would fine colleges and universities if they fail to ensure students have left the country.

Immigration System in 'Intensive Care'
Home Affairs Committee chairman Keith Vaz criticised ministers over exit checks, missing migrants and the use of a single immigration target. A committee report on UK immigration directorates made a range of criticisms and raised "serious doubts" over plans to bring in exit checks - by next April - on all those leaving the UK.

Heading the conclusions of the committee's report was an attack on the government over the proposed exit checks. Mr Vaz said MPs had been assured that, by April 2015, a new system of "departure lists" would be in place for all passengers leaving the UK - but the report says this "no longer looks likely". Failure to meet the target on time would "give rise to the twin perils of increased security risks and illegal migration", Mr Vaz said.

It follows more than a decade of problems and delays in the "e-borders" project, a scheme devised by the Labour government in 2003 to count everyone in and out of the UK by collecting advance passenger information. "Successive governments have spent millions of pounds of taxpayers' money on the botched e-borders programme. Everyone who enters and leaves Britain must be counted in and out," Mr Vaz said.
